A couple people commented on one of my messages from a couple weeks ago where I expressed concern for what I think is bound to happen to the economy in the future.
I don’t think it looks good.
Eventually we’ll need to pay the piper.
Too much money has just been printed out of thin air without anything to back it.
Call me qualitatively un-eased…
The thing is, there’s nothing you or I can do about it.
We’re simply not powerful enough, and the issue is much bigger than any of us.
So what can we do?
Learn & master the basics.
Blocking & tackling to put it in football terms.
Some people may think that boring. They want the fancy techniques. The ninja moves.
But when push comes to shove (and even if it never does), if you are a master of the fundamentals, you will always be able to adapt and adjust and do well.
What are the fundamentals for a real estate investor?
3 things I harp on to my students every time I’m teaching.
Think about it.
These 3 fundamentals can also work for any other type of business you want to do (or find yourself in if things go haywire).
* You always need to know how find more customers for your business or job (marketing)
* You always need to know how to move someone from saying ‘no’ to saying “YES!” to you (negotiation)
* You always need to know how to control a situation to get the outcome you need (control)
Yes, in an uncertain world nothing is more certain than that.
Nothing is more certain than being able to rely on yourself.
Building yourself up and learning skills you can re-use no matter what may come.
No one can ever take that away from you.
But the time to start learning is now.
Not once the proverbial has already hit the fan.
Here’s an easy place to start:
Read my best-selling book “How to Correctly Flip Houses for a Profit”.
It’ll start to build you and your skills up.
And in an uncertain world, nothing is more certain than that.
